      Wow, look at all those baguettes!
      And thanks for the history behind the design, that's why I love CW. We not only share beautiful pieces such as Jenni's Plum, we learn so much about the making of such pieces and the why...
      I have to say it again...Wow, this is a keeper!!

      Thank you very much for the love

      Thanks Eileen, I'm really glad you enjoyed the history behind this as did I. Mrs Simpson was said to have a stunning jewelry collection and many costume makers made knockoffs of them, for example her flamingo brooch was a beauty. Thanks for the lovely compliments!

      Many thanks for the super compliments Mary, I was lucky to find this in good condition for its age and agree the design is timeless, love most of the Philippe pieces for Trifari

      So pleased you liked this MrsT and really appreciate the kind comment :)
